Jetlag: how to avoid feeling unwell
Painful condition due to the rapid change of time zones – more than 2 and only on the plane – is jet lag or desynchronosis.
It feels like a hangover: with drowsiness, headache, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, loss of appetite. This is because our biorhythms do not have time to adapt to the sunny day in a new country.
How jetlag affects the tourist
It can spoil a long-awaited trip pretty much, because it can last from 2 to 8 days. There is no cure for jetlag, but there are some effective tips to alleviate this condition:
• it is better to choose flights arriving in the evening to get a good night's sleep;
• if you arrive early in the morning, try to sleep on the plane - take a sleep mask, noise-absorbing headphones with you;
• time in the fresh air and stay awake during the day will also help;
• even if you do not want to sleep at all at night, you need to try to fall asleep;
• it is recommended to drink a lot of water and at least the first days not to drink coffee, alcohol, snacks, fast food;
• training or swimming in the pool will help improve the condition.
In addition, mobile applications will help to cope with jetlag, which give individual recommendations on how to quickly bounce back.
